Went to Mel's as tourists since the wife had seen it in a movie. Had fairly low expectations but right from the get go this was a very pleasant experience and a nice surprise. The diner was very clean, the wait staff very friendly and attentive. Was happily impressed to note they had grass fed beef as an alternative in... More

We visited here in arrival to our hotel and in search of a good meal after travelling from the Uk and we weren't disappointed! We all had burgers but they were of a great standard and were really good portions, just what we needed after nearly 14hours travelling! Great price and the device was marvellous too!

We wanted to get a quick dinner after arriving in West Hollywood and Mels seemed to have good reviews. Our waitress was very pleasant and we ordered our food and drinks. Food came very quickly but wasnt that good. Chicken was greasy and dry and the burger was just so overloaded to be enjoyable.

Excellent choices, prices and service. I had the blue plate country fried steak with homemade mashed potatoes and veggies, and she had the short rib. Both were delicious.

Went twice in the same day. Morning, for breakfast, was OK, but not a large selection. Would have rated it quite highly if it were not for the fact we had our evening meal there. In the evening we had meatloaf and chicken pot pie. The meatloaf was accompanied by mashed potato and mixed veg. The meatloaf was hot, but... More

We ate at this diner for a couple of breakfasts and also on our first evening in Hollywood - it's a pretty close walk from the Andaz and having been travelling for 20 hrs, full of jetlag and hungry, this was an ideal venue. Full of nostalgia, the diner serves a great selection of burgers, salads p, sandwiches etc and... More

We had a nice late dinner, a few beers and fun with the jukebox. The service was friendly and fast and the hamburger very good.

This old style diner offers a good variety of favorites with generous portions and friendly staff it is a great way to start the day or grab a meal for lunch or dinner. Prices are average but the food is well worth it.
